Friends of Tettegouche seeks volunteers for work day

The newly formed Friends of Tettegouche State Park will collaborate with state park staff on a "Family Work and Fun Day" at the historic Tettegouche Camp from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14.

Tettegouche State Park staff are stretched very thin, with nearly 500,000 visitors expected in 2018, and financial support has not kept pace. Volunteers can help staff at Tettegouche in maintaining the historic buildings and surrounding grounds, while also enjoying fun and fellowship.

Chores include chinking cabins, stacking firewood, cleaning cabins, grounds cleanup and more. Hot drinks, a campfire and canoes will be available for volunteers. Also, as a benefit for volunteering, park interpretive naturalist Kurt Mead will provide a guided hike into the camp grounds that day.

All materials and work details will be provided by park staff.

Volunteers should meet at 11:45 a.m. at the Lax Lake Road park access point. Bring a lunch and work gloves.
